On December 26, 2013, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) released its final “Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards.”
This guidance is applicable to grants and cooperative agreements and represents a comprehensive consolidation and revision of OMB Circulars currently governing Federal awards to non-Federal entities. The guidance combines A-110 and A-102 into a single set of administrative rules; combines A-21, A-87, and A-122 into a single set of consolidated cost principles with entity-specific appendices describing indirect rate guidance for government, higher education, and nonprofits; revises the language of A-133; and presents all in a single document serving as a “one-stop shop” for financial assistance regulatory requirements.
